Stunning Stripes

Spring 2017 fashion trend: Striped dresses, maternity fashion

The Designers: Carolina Herrera, Lacoste, Alexander Wang

Seraphine’s Top Tip: Don’t be afraid of horizontal stripes in maternity fashion! Far from making you look wider, they can actually work to slim your silhouette by highlighting your gorgeous baby bump!

Connect the Dots: Rock Polka Dot Maternity Clothes this Spring

The Seraphine style spotters have connected all the dots to pinpoint the hottest new trend to work into your maternity clothes this season; and it turns out, the fashion elite have gone totally dotty for polka dots!  We’re seeing spots everywhere from top designer runways to celebrity red carpet looks, edgy street style blogs and the hottest maternity fashions. This timeless repeating pattern is the perfect way to flatter your pregnancy curves – the sun is out and now is the time to rock those dots!

Polka dots are one of those trends that come back year after year – a true timeless classic. But this season they’ve really come into their own, with fashion houses from Lela Rose to Marc Jacobs and Dolce & Gabbana making style statements with spots in their SS15 catwalk collections. And the dotty situation is much the same at Seraphine: Check out our Grey Polka Dot Maternity Cardigan, Polka Dot Maternity Blouse, Polka Dot Cropped Maternity Trousers and a whole host of stylish polka dot maternity dresses and you’ll see what we mean!


And it’s not just us feeling the love for polka dots; some of the most stylish expectant celebs have been showcasing their new curves in spotted ensembles. Back in the Autumn Keira Knightly rocked a number of dotty dresses including a stunning Dolce & Gabbana style, which she wore on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival. The Duchess of Cambridge is another stylish mum with a known penchant for polka dots, and has been spotted (pun definitely intended) rocking polka dots through both of her pregnancies, wearing our Polka Dot Mock Wrap Maternity Dress towards the end of her first. New mum & Canadian model Coco Rocha looked stunning in our Silk Chiffon Polka Dot Dress during New York Fashion Week. And while we haven’t seen New Girl star Zooey Deschanel rocking any polka dot maternity dresses just yet, we’d be prepared to bet that it won’t be too long before we do – polka dots are one of the expectant actress’ signature styles!

Urban Safari: Five Key Pieces to Work the Trend for Pregnancy

Get ahead of the stampede this season and work the trend in an urban safari inspired outfit! One of the hottest trends of SS14; these African explorer inspired styles were spotted all over the catwalks from Diane Von Furstenberg’s luxe gold shirt dresses and animal prints, to Orla Kiely’s preppy traveller girls in khakis and brightly coloured animal motifs exploring their safari adventure styled set!

The key to this classic trend is to combine neutral earthy tones – khakis, camel, sand and green, with funky tribal and animal prints like snakeskin, zebra and leopard. And to update the look for the new season, why not introduce a cheeky flash of colour into the mix! This is the perfect trend to work for pregnancy; with so many styling elements to mix and match with, you can go for an all out explorer style, or spice up a neutral outfit with a subtle hint of savanna chic.


Here are the five key pieces you’ll need this season to work the urban safari look:


Summer Slouchy Maternity Trousers

Shop the Summer Slouchy Maternity Trousers

Our ultra flattering summer trousers are light, loose and easy to wear, and come in black, khaki or a stylish tribal print. These are an essential piece this season, and are perfect for working your safari chic look in the concrete jungle.

Style these super slimming trousers with a plain black top, gladiator sandals and some gold safari inspired accessories – we love this feathery gold necklace from Stella & Dot.


Linen Layering Maternity Top

Light linen layers will keep you cool in the hustle and bustle of the city just as well as they would on the African savanna, so our linen maternity top is a must have. It comes in soft ash grey or pastel peach – both of which look fabulous when paired with khaki!

Style this top with our next key piece: The Woven Maternity Shorts!


Woven Maternity Shorts

Summer Maternity Poncho

Our essential summer maternity poncho is fabulously loose fitting and comes in two super safari shades – khaki and sand. Loose and floaty styles tap into the more bohemian side to the safari trend, and this romantic maternity top is specifically designed to flatter your changing curves.

Style these tops with our ShoeTherapy Python Ballerina Pumps, skinny jeans and a long pendant necklace – try Stella & Dot’s stylish Sahara pendant.


Maternity Trench Coat
